Inga Saffron, Pulitzer Prize winning architecture critic for the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote about the stairwell at the Barnes Foundation, designed by Tod Williams & Billiie Tsien Architects. They are masterful architects, who took on a difficult job in designing new galleries for the Barnes when the collection was moved from the Paul Cret designed building in Merion to Center CIty Philadelphia. I’m glad to see Inga point out one of the grace notes that makes Williams & Tsien’s work so special.

Inga has started writing short pieces in the Sunday arts section about small things well designed that make life better.
